I have to make a wedding cake with fondant grass around each tier that shoots above the cake top. I have Tylose if I added a little to my fondant would it be ok if someone decided to eat the grass? I have used it in fondant to make large bows but obviously most people wouldn't eat that. The picture the bride gave me says fondant otherwise I would use gum paste. TIA

Its not a problem if some wants to eat fondant with tylo in. in my opinion it doesnt alter the taste and iv never had any complaints! good luck.

It should be fine to eat, but I wouldn't think you would even need it for that.

I don't think that most people outside of the cake decorating arena understand the difference between gumpaste and fondant. Tylose is edible, but I think that if you told the bride that gumpaste is a better alternative (same look, still edible, easier to fulfill what she wants) then she would go for it.

So true! I once had someone tell me they got a discount on their wedding cake because they settled for fondant flowers instead of sugarpaste flowers icon_confused.gif

Yes, exactly.. I just don't think that people know that there's a difference and even if they do, they aren't sure what the difference is. It's not really common knowledge and I'm sure that your bride would understand if it was explained to her. If your design has grass standing on end... that might be a PITA with fondant.

Thank you everyone for all the info. Glad I finally took someones advice and joined CakeCentral. I used to frequent another cake board for over 10 years and when everyone started to disappear I was told they moved here. Again Thank you.
